Before we plunge in, I would like to freely admit (confess?) that what follows is documented proof of my arrested development.
First, autumn is my favorite season. Agreed, that doesn't qualify as abnormal -- I'm simply setting the stage, offering context, background, you get the idea.
Second, September to me means back-to-school! And, September is right around the corner.
This is where it gets a little wacky. For me, fall continues to be symbolic of new clothes and supplies for the scholastic year although I don't really yearn to sit in a classroom. I do, however yearn for school supplies.
This is what I want, heading into those crisp, promising days ahead:
1.) A new camel hair polo coat similar to this one from Brooks Brothers only maybe a bit longer if possible. (As I explained previously, the last one I had was in college; the one before in high school. Both were double-breasted, I think single will do nicely this time around.)
2.) Either these Chanel or those from Roger Vivier. Both pick up the fall camel vibe and I'm pretty well covered in the other details. Yes, Pseu, it's true, I'm meekly poaching in your territory.
3.) Spanking new classroom (OK, home desk, purse, next-to-the-bed) accessories. I am wildly mad about anything from Ben. I need a stylo case for all my colored pens and pencils -- which I love beyond reason -- and perhaps another one for my makeup because I like what both of them say.
Also on my list are some new notebooks, a fresh agenda which you will notice starts in September not in January -- completely normal as far as I'm concerned -- and a bunch of new pens in a rainbow of ink colors.
I'm so excited. I'll be the first person ready to roll into the new year or la rentrée, as the French say.
I hope you don't think I'm joking.
